We’re a little late as some of you are already in class with her, but we would like to introduce our newest trainer, Jasmine! We are so happy to add her to our team and we know you guys will love her just as much as we do. You can read her bio below:
Growing up in Connecticut, there was rarely a time I found myself without dogs. From the time I was born, much of my family’s life centered around raising working breeds such as Dobermans, German Shepherds, and Labs.
Over the years I fell in love with their behavior and drive. As a military brat, my dogs were my constant companions through frequent moves. During this time and even after, I often filled my days with training my own dogs and dog sitting for friends.
Shortly after moving to Virginia, I adopted my first puppy, Rayna, and discovered The Good Dog Yorktown. Attending classes as a client quickly turned into a mentorship. With a background in Education through Connecticut College, I found my teaching ability strongly translated into training. Under the guidance of Katie and Morgan, I’ve not only built an incredible relationship with Rayna, but have found passion in instilling that same confidence in other dog owners.
I live for the moments when owners are excited to share milestones they experience in and outside the training room. My goal as a trainer is to set up each individual dog and owner up for success to reach their unique goals.
In our spare time Rayna and I love to go on hikes, beach outings, and road trips. Training has allowed Rayna and I to have the freedom to travel together in a way I’ve always dreamed of and working all together I know we can get you and your companion there too!
